COVID-19 - Information

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic declared by the World Health Organisation and the pronouncements of the Swiss Federal Council designed to protect the population, we would like to update you on Lenz & Staehelin's response to the public health situation.
 
Our priority is to reduce the risk of infection for our clients and staff. To this end, we are following the recommendations of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and have implemented a number of measures accordingly.
 
International and national travel of our staff has been severely restricted and participation in external conferences and events has been cancelled for the time being. Whenever possible we have asked our staff to replace meetings with telephone and video conferences.
 
We have implemented our business continuity plan to face the possibility of an office closure. Dedicated to maintaining a high level of legal service in these challenging times, our staff are fully prepared and equipped to work remotely, accessing firm systems by means that maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data.
